A seven-time convict, Emmanuel Oyewunmi, has been arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly stealing from a driver and a passenger.
The 41-year-old, who was arrested at the Ojodu Berger bus stop on Friday, had earlier been declared wanted by the RRS for allegedly stealing the phone of one Mrs. Adesewa Oni in the Alausa area of the state.
